Aviator sunglasses — for a frame that never goes out of style
Few frames are as timeless as aviator sunglasses. Originally designed to be worn by pilots, aviator sunglasses tend to be quite dark, reflective, and slightly convex in an attempt to prevent as much light as possible from entering the eye.
The other distinguishing factor of aviator sunglasses is the thin metal frame that surrounds the lens.
The first line of aviator sunglasses for men was released in the 1930s, providing American military pilots with stylish, functional protection against the sun. Images of pilots wearing aviators were very well received by the public, signalling that the style of the frame could make the transition to fashion accessories. Over the years, everyone from Elvis Presley to Tom Cruise has been seen sporting aviator sunglasses. However, you don’t need to be a celebrity to pull these sunglasses off. With their oversized lenses and fine frames, aviators suit everyone, regardless of your status or face shape.
For one of our most popular aviator products, check out our Bang sunglasses. The thin acetate frame is typical of the aviator aesthetic but durable and hard-wearing. Oversized lenses and an insert metal brow trim make the Bang sunglasses timeless and unique.
